Faculty of


Mechanical Engineering Department


The Mechanical Engineering Department was established in 2011, aiming to provide students with the sound mechanical engineering education (knowledge, skills, and attitudes) that enables them to assume a leadership role in promoting proper engineering practice in professional, ethical, environmental, sustainability, and life-long learning frames, advance the understanding and application of mechanical engineering principles through partnership with local industry, and improve the quality of life of Jordanians through teaching, research, and outreach programs.


To graduate highly-qualified mechanical engineers who are capable of facing current and future challenges.
To be distinguished in scientific and academic outcomes and values.
To provide the necessary research environment.


To provide national and regional students with the opportunity to engage in an enjoyable and supportive learning experience leading to a well-recognized graduate qualification.
To prepare students for careers in different fields of mechanical engineering (general mechanical engineering, thermal power and energy, and materials and manufacture).
To keep up with the latest developments of engineering technology for the academic staff and students, and update the department study plan accordingly.
To offer services to the local and regional communities.


Provide graduates the required knowledge and skills and apply them to identify and solve mechanical engineering problems.
Expand and enhance the abilities related to the responsibilities of the mechanical engineer towards the profession and society.
Develop the abilities of graduates to stay current with new developments of engineering technology.
Engage the graduates in advanced academic and research careers.
Embedding an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities of mechanical engineers.
